Mr. P. Thorneycroft

I give below a table showing the quantities of fresh tomatoes imported through Scottish ports during May, June, July, August and September, 1951, and 1952, and the countries from which they were consigned. There were no imports of plums or strawberries during these periods. Corresponding figures for 1950 are not available in this detail but total imports through Scottish ports during that year were:
